    Blues Traveler (Black Vinyl)

    Blues Traveler, the eponymous debut album from Blues Traveler, was released on A&M Records in 1990. It establishes the band's trademark jam band sound featuring John Popper's harmonica. On several songs, notably Warmer Days, a then-unknown Joan Osborne sings background vocals.

    Medieval Marble Vinyl


    Fully Remastered Audio By Jeffrey Norman


    Custom True Replica Jacket Featuring Brilliant Original Artwork


    I have my moments, John Popper declares, and many of them -- as harmonica player, singer, and lyricist -- are here, on an album that finds Blues Traveler stretching out much as they do on-stage. Popper is a man with a lot on his mind, but when he reaches The Best Part, his verbosity approaches a Walt Whitman-like exuberance, and guitarist Chan Kinchla is right with him, contributing sweet fills here, Pete Townshend-style strumming there. And as for the rhythm work of bassist Bobby Sheehan and drummer Brendan Hill, as Popper says, It's all in the groove.

    Save His Soul

    Celestial Marble Vinyl


    Fully Remastered Audio By Jeffrey Norman


    Custom True Replica Jacket Featuring Brilliant Original Artwork


    Blues Traveler are a hippie blues'n'boogie band in the mode of Canned Heat and Savoy Brown. Led by John Popper, a rotund singer and harmonica player, the New Jersey quartet captured the open-ended jam mentality of its live shows on its first two studio albums. On their third album, Save His Soul, Blues Traveler tightens up their arrangements and puts more emphasis on songwriting and premeditated parts. While this cuts down on the meandering solos and monotonous rhythm patterns, it forces attention on the hackneyed aphorisms and melody-starved chord changes that pass for the band's songwriting. On the other hand, they have improved noticeably as players, and bassist Bobby Sheehan shines in particular on the fast and tricky syncopations. --Geoffrey Himes

    Just Like You

    Available On Vinyl For The First Time


    Featuring Bonnie Raitt & Jackson Browne


    Just Like You is the third album by three-time American Grammy Award-winning blues musician Keb' Mo' (born Kevin Moore). Keb'Mo' has been described as a living link to the seminal Delta blues that travelled up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America. His post-modern Blues style is influenced by many eras and genres, including Folk, Rock, Jazz and Pop.


    Originally released in 1996, the album features guest artists Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt, both on the title track Just Like You. Unlike the first album, Just Like You features a more Blues-Pop to Blues Rock feel and more of its tracks feature a full band. The album was produced by John Porter (Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Taj Mahal, a.o.).


    In 1997, Just Like You won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album. This is the first ever vinyl issue of this classic album!

    Mouth Harp Blues

    Shakey Jake - Mouth Harp Blues The late James Harris earned the moniker Shakey Jake due to his proficiency at dice, but he was equally adept at the blues game. The Arkansas-born, Chicago-based singer and harmonica blower traveled to Rudy Van Gelder's New Jersey studio in November 1960 to record this, his second album for the Bluesville label. Jake brought along Jimmie Lee Robinson, the brilliant, fast-fingered guitarist best known for his work with Little Walter's band. Also making tasty contributions to the session was Robert Banks, the New York R&B and gospel studio organist who, in this case, ably appointed himself as a two-fisted blues piano stylist. Among the 10 selections is the distinctively loping Easy Baby, a tune also associated with Jake's nephew Magic Sam.


    Guitarist Jimmie Lee Robinson, who died in 2002, was the soul of Acoustic Sounds' own APO Records. He was the first to record at Blue Heaven Studios, having made three records (one still unreleased) in the converted church, and he was there several more times to perform. A Chicago native and lifelong resident, Robinson began playing guitar in the open-air market on Maxwell Street in 1942 with the likes of Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Nighthawk. He later teamed with Freddie King for a four-year partnership and went on to play guitar and bass with Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Eddie Taylor, Elmore James, Jimmy Rogers, Jimmy Reed, Magic Sam and of course Shakey Jake.

    Blue Hour

    Blue Hour is the first release by The Drift since the passing of their indelible trumpet player, Jeff Jacobs, but his spirit is undeniably present throughout the album. Without a doubt their most meditative release since their Travels In Constants debut, Blue Hour eases off the jazz and dub influences that had become a trademark of The Drift's sound, and instead focuses on hypnotic repetition and subtle, textural layering of guitars, keyboards, electric bass and drums.

    Kiss You Kidnapped Charabanc

    Nikki Sudden's collaboration with former Birthday
    Party guitarist Rowland S. Howard peaked with Kiss You
    Kidnapped Charabanc, the duo's 1987 first and only full
    length. Howard's sinister guitar flourishes and malevolent
    lyrical motifs lead Sudden's paisley-clad disposition into
    murkier waters, drudging the same sludge inhabited by
    The Gun Club and Nick Cave's Bad Seeds. Unhinged slide
    guitars, noise and primal drumming draw up demented
    pacts forged in the blood of Southern Gothic swamp
    stomp and Depression-era devotionals-tales of lovers and
    demons split between the vocal transmissions of the two
    minds behind this goth-steeped, blues-punk essential.


    In founding Swell Maps, the post-punk prefacing
    Birmingham art-snots, Nikki Sudden and his drumming
    brother Epic Soundtracks charted new territory for racket
    and corrosive guitar. But after folding Swell Maps at the
    dawn of the '80s, Nikki Sudden plowed through another
    decade's worth of terrifically fertile ground. Drawing on
    his devotion to the Rolling Stones and T. Rex-alongside
    guitarist Dave Kusworth as Jacobites, plus a cheekily named
    cohort of British sidemen-Nikki Sudden cut a string of
    raw, inspired rock 'n' roll records, etched with double-edged travel melancholia and hard-bitten punk dejection.

    A Meal You Can Shake Hands With In The Dark (Pure Pleasure)

    Pete Brown was a Londoner and a veteran of the underground scene. Born in 1940, he first came to prominence as a poet. He was just 14 when his first poem appeared in Evergreen Revue in the US. Then in the early sixties he worked alongside another British poet Mike Horowitz. His direct involvement with rock music came when he was asked to form a songwriting partnership with Jack Bruce to write lyrics for Cream and the partnership proceeded to produce the lyrics for many of their finest songs: Wrapping Paper, I Feel Free, Sunshine Of Your Love and White Room. After the demise of Cream, Brown continued to write with Bruce but also began his own recording career with The Battered Ornaments who included Chris Spedding. After an initial 45, which with its wailing saxes and effective vocals was underrated, the band recorded this album which was a mixture of jazz-rock and blues. Dark Lady, The Old Man and Station Song were among the fine tracks and the latter later got a further airing on the Before Singing Lessons compilation. Station Song and Dark Lady had earlier featured along with Travelling Blues on the ultra-rare promo-only Harvest Sampler in 1969.



    Brown then suffered the humiliation of being thrown out of the band the night before they had a Hyde Park gig with The Rolling Stones. Brown's response was to form a new band, Piblokto!



    This release breaks the long sides down to four sides of vinyl which enhances the sound quality considerably. Also of interest is that it has been mastered in the same studio at Abbey Road as was the initial release and from the same original analogue tape masters.




    Musicians:



    • Pete Brown (vocal, trumpet)

    • Nisar A. Khan (tenor saxophone)

    • Dick Heckstall-Smith (tenor saxophone)

    • Chris Spedding (guitar)

    • Charlie Hart (organ)

    • Butch Porter (bass)

    • Rob Tait (drums)

    • Pete Bailey (conga)




    Production: Andrew King and Dick Heckstall-Smith



    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    All My Life

    With All My Life, his second APO Records release, Jimmie Lee is aiming for goose bumps and tears. And if you've got appreciation for acoustic, front porch blues, you'll have a tough time escaping his spell.


    No doubt Jimmie Lee Robinson offers a delightful taste of traditional blues. His work through the years with such stalwarts as Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Freddie King, Elmore James and Jimmy Reed have made their impressions on the man called The Lonely Traveler just as he has been credited with inspiring them.


    On All My Life you'll hear standby classics like a haunting, slowed-down version of Muddy Waters' Forty Days and Forty Nights with eerie harmonica accompaniment by Madison Slim. And Jimmie Lee even covers a non-blues favorite with What a Wonderful World. His live version of that song at a 1999 concert in Blue Heaven Studios - the converted church that is home to APO Records - brought tears to scores of the 400 in attendance.


    But All My Life is also packed with Jimmie Lee originals like the title track, which was once covered by John Mayall, where Jimmie Lee pleads with the woman of his dreams to return all the respect and love he's paid to her. That track is also a perfect showcase for the classic Jimmie Lee growling vocals and the spurs jangling from his boots as the only percussion.


    Unlike his first APO release, Remember Me, an almost entirely-solo effort, Jimmie Lee is joined on most of the All My Life tracks by APO artist and noted-guitarist Jimmy D. Lane and journeyman harp player Madison Slim, whose knack for acoustic blues is highlighted on this release.


    Jimmie Lee has gained national attention for his protest of the destruction of Chicago's famed Maxwell Street, said to be the birthplace of Chicago blues and the neighborhood where Jimmie Lee grew up. He fasted for 81 straight days, shunning solid food as if it was the wrecking ball he so badly wants to stop. His efforts were even documented on the front page of the New York Times.

    of their progressive rock sound for the fans of this legendary English quintet. Featuring the original award winning lineup of Justin Hayward (lead vocals/guitars), John Lodge (lead vocals/bass), Ray Thomas (lead vocals/flutes), Ray Pinder
    (lead vocals/keyboards) and Graeme Edge (drums/vocals), In Search of the Lost Chord is undoubtedly one of their biggest
    selling albums and also one of the finest offerings in their huge catalog.


    Buoyed by the success of the hit single Ride My See-Saw, their definitive follow up to Days of Future Passed, In Search of the Lost Chord was filled with more hypnotic rockers like the powerful Ray Thomas classic Legend of a Mind, John Lodge's masterpiece House of Four Doors, plus the legendary Justin Hayward's prog-rock
    champion Voices in the Sky.


    The wonderful release also features a fine array of songs from vocalist and keyboard whiz Mike Pinder including
    the acid rock sounds of The Best Way to Travel and the album's stellar closer Om, as well as the ever talented Graeme
    Edge's distinctive drum work throughout the LP and his lyrical prowess with the album's well known classics The Word
    and Departure.


    The beauty of this album is that you could always count on a classic listen from these five gentlemen of song.
    Featuring Ray Thomas' striking vocals and flute delivery, Justin Hayward's and John Lodge's guitars and vocal acumen,
    the magic of Ray Pinder on the keys and classic vocal, plus Graeme Edge's powerful drum and singing, In Search of the
    Lost Chord became the album of choice for radio programmers in 1968. All in all, a hypnotic and spirited set from this
    very important and much loved classic rock band.

    FRKWYS Vol. 11 - Contos De Lisboa

    For the the eleventh volume of FRKWYS, an unrestricted series pairing contemporary
    artists with their influential predecessors, gifted guitar squire Steve Gunn meets roving,
    radiating legend Mike Cooper in Lisbon, Portugal.


    Sharing their vision over lengthy living room guitar sessions and evenings of cold wine
    in Fado taverns, Gunn and Cooper created Cantos de Lisboa, an album with variable
    vernacular shades and musical forms from Portugal's antiquity.


    Cantos means "corner" in Portuguese, as well as "chant" or "song" (this latter meaning
    evolved from the Latin antecedent referring to stanzas of verse in poetry). For two artists
    whose roots lie in the country blues and its subverted offshoots, the proverbial "corner"
    is actually home, the undisturbed spot where music can flourish.


    A tranquil interlude for these two travellers to create off-guard improvisations in their
    shared style of deconstructed guitar music, Cantos de Lisboa is a curious detail in the
    periphery of their snapshot of Portugal.


    In his fifty-year-plus career, Cooper's global ventures have transported his music to
    exotic locales parallel to Lisbon. 2004's Rayon Hula musically translated the patterned
    flora of aloha shirts (Cooper's signature garment) as looped samples of famed Hawaiian
    vibraphone player Arthur Lyman for an avant vivified form of exotica.


    Rayon Hula signaled Cooper's vital re-emergence as a dexterous alchemist of slide
    guitar. Cooper's discography is colored with similar instances of casually conceptual,
    improvisatory guitar music, including his 1970 masterpiece Trout Steel (an album Gunn
    recalls in Cantos de Lisboa's liner notes as shaping his own ambitions and music).
    For his part, Gunn's path to Portugal was compelled by his kinship to Cooper and
    his ilk's experimentation with guitar-picked country blues and 70s British folk. Gunn's
    extracurricular immersion in free jazz and psychedelia, no doubt influenced by his
    Philadelphia upbringing and surroundings, ensures his playing never grits or grids and
    always soars to ecstatic heights.


    These musical emblems were gracefully memorialized on Gunn's celebrated Time
    Off (Paradise of Bachelors, 2013) and across a substantial catalog of solo, duo and
    ensemble work that resembles that of a veteran player more than a young guitar
    slinger.


    On Cantos de Lisboa, Gunn and Cooper take emotive cues from Fado, the regional
    music of Portugal, which is in close plaintive spirit to the blues. A melancholy seeps into
    the music, while steering a wide berth from any bummer notes or pastiche. Cooper's
    sparse effects toolkit and stately, gliding cadences are nimbly employed, while Gunn's
    ashen voice and steady strum lend an intensely organic feel to the album's improvisatory
    portraits.


    The latter half of Cantos de Lisboa echoes the "saudade" theme as referenced in
    the blissful opening track, Cooper's howl spiriting the Portuguese word that translates
    roughly into "loss" or "longing." Saudade is said to be the core feature of Fado music. In
    Cantos de Lisboa, Saudade becomes a spirit inhabiting the album's corners, but never
    disrupting the musicians' collaborative evocations.


    In the hands of these two limitless guitarists, Cantos de Lisboa convenes in an abstract,
    almost field recorded take on lap-steel and American Primitive guitar styles. For the
    brief idyll, Gunn and Cooper's collaboration is remarkably rich, marking their passage
    through Portugal not just as a time to revel in an ancient city, but a time for focused
    collaboration and creative consonance.

    Porcupine Meat

    Naming one's album after a song titled "Porcupine Meat" may seem a little unusual - unless, of course, you're Bobby Rush, who earned his first gold record in 1971 with a hit entitled "Chicken Heads." He elaborates on his recent composition: "If a lady won't treat me right, but she doesn't want anyone else to have me, that is hard to digest." Hence the lyric, "too fat to eat, too lean to throw away."


    Porcupine Meat is Rush's debut release for Rounder Records, and one of the best recordings of his astonishing 60-plus year career. The album is due out September 16, 2016.
    Rush estimates that he has cut over 300 songs since he first began making music. He has been honored with three Grammy nominations, as well as ten Blues Music Awards and 41 nominations. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2006.


    Make no mistake: Rush is not your typical octogenarian. At age 82, he exudes the energy of a 20-year-old, on the road for more than 200 dates a year. His hectic tour schedule has earned him the affectionate title King of the Chitlin' Circuit. Rush has traveled the globe including Japan and Beirut. In 2007, he earned the distinction of being the first blues artist to play at the Great Wall of China. His renowned stage act features his famed shake dancers, who personify his funky blues and the ribald humor that he has cultivated during the course of his storied career.


    Born Emmet Ellis, Jr. in Homer, Louisiana, he adopted the stage name Bobby Rush out of respect for his father, a pastor. According to Rush, his parents never talked about the blues being the devil's music. "My daddy never told me to sing the blues, but he also didn't tell me to not sing the blues. I took that as a green light."


    Rush built his first guitar when he was a youngster. "I didn't know where to buy one, even if I had the money. I was a country boy," he says. After seeing a picture of a guitar in a magazine, he decided to make one by attaching the top wire of a broom to a wall and fretting it with a bottle. He also got some harmonica lessons from his father He eventually acquired a real guitar, and started playing in juke joints as a teenager, when his family briefly relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas. The fake moustache Rush wore made club owners believe he was old enough to gain entry into their establishments. While he was living in Little Rock, Rush's band, which featured Elmore James, had a residency at a nightspot called Jackrabbit.


    During the mid-1950s, Rush relocated to Chicago to pursue his musical career and make a better life for himself. It was there that he started to work with Earl Hooker, Luther Allison, and Freddie King, and sat in with many of his musical heroes, such as Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, and Little Walter. Rush eventually began leading his own band in the 1960s. He also started to craft his own distinct style of funky blues, and recorded a succession of singles for a various small labels. It wasn't until the early 1970s that Rush finally scored a hit with "Chicken Heads." More recordings followed, including an album for Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff's Philadelphia International Label.
    Rush relocated one final time, to Jackson, Miss. in the early 1980s. He was tired of the cold up north, and he realized that setting up his base of operations directly in the center of the South would make it easier to perform in nearby cities on weekends. More indie label recordings followed. Songs like "Sue, A Man Can Give (But He Sure Can't Take It)," "What's Good For The Goose Is Good For The Gander Too," and" I Ain't Studdin' You" became regional jukebox favorites in juke joints throughout the region, and many of those songs are still fan favorites that are an integral part of his live repertoire.


    Since 2003, Rush has self-released the majority of his work (including the critically acclaimed Folk Funk album) on his Deep Rush label, but recently, he came to the realization that having a bigger record company behind him would be beneficial. "I outgrew myself," he says. "I need someone to help in doing the things I can't do. When you are wearing all the hats, you can't be everywhere at once."


    Enter esteemed producer and two-time Grammy winner Scott Billington, Rounder Records' longtime VP of A&R. Billington first met Rush at a Recording Academy meeting 25 years ago, and they became fast friends. He has wanted to work with Rush ever since. "He is the most vital bluesman of his generation," says Billington. He continues, "There are many people who still don't know Bobby Rush, even though he is a hero in the parallel universe of the Chitlin' Circuit - fans stop him on the street in Memphis and Helena and Little Rock."


    Porcupine Meat will not only please Rush's older fans, but is likely to win over many new ones. Billington reflects, "We wanted to come up with something fresh, while staying 100% true to Bobby."


    The album was recorded in New Orleans, and Rush was pleased and proud to be given the opportunity to make an album in his home state for the very first time. His impassioned vocals and in-the-pocket harmonica playing are among the best performances of his career. Unlike most of his recent releases, these sessions only feature real instruments and no synthesizers. All of the rhythm tracks were cut live in the studio, often edited down from jams that on several occasions ran close to ten minutes.


    For the project, Billington assembled some of the best Louisiana musicians, including Shane Theriot, David Torkanowsky, Jeffrey "Jellybean" Alexander, Kirk Joseph, Cornell Williams, and others. Rush brought along his old friend and longtime collaborator, guitarist Vasti Jackson, who worked with Bobby and Scott on getting the songs ready for the studio. Guitar greats Dave Alvin, Keb' Mo', and Joe Bonamassa all make guest appearances on the album.


    Rush has always been a prolific and clever songwriter. The songs he penned for Porcupine Meat such as "Dress Too Short," "I Don't Want Nobody Hanging Around," "Me, Myself And I," "Nighttime Gardener," "It's Your Move," and the title selection, all equal or rival his best material. "Funk O' De Funk" delivers exactly what the title suggests and what Rush has always done the best, which is putting the funk into the blues. While "Got Me Accused" is inspired by events from Rush's own life, the lyrics tell an all-too-familiar tale about the rampant racial injustice that afflicts our society. Producer Billington and his wife Johnette Downing (the well known New Orleans songwriter and children's musician) co-wrote a couple of fine selections, "Catfish Stew" and "Snake In The Grass."


    Bobby Rush is the greatest bluesman currently performing. Porcupine Meat is a testament to his brilliance, which presents him at his very best, and doesn't try to be anything that he is not. "I just try to record good music and stories," he humbly states. With this recording, he has more than accomplished his goal, and has produced one of the finest contemporary blues albums in recent times.

    Labor Against Waste

    "What a real self contained, modern day troubadour looks and sounds like. A voice to be reckoned with in the years to come." - American Songwriter There is a fearless quality to the music of new ANTI- signing Christopher Paul Stelling. A voice that sounds both old and young, an effortless yet intricate finger-picking guitar style, and lyrics that are dramatic and intensely confessional. It's a sound that channels the restless spirit of a young man who left home to travel the country, writing haunting and impassioned songs formed by endless nights alone on stage with a guitar, playing to packed houses, other times to nearly empty rooms. Stelling estimates that he's played over four hundred shows in just the past three years. It places him within a longstanding tradition that serves to build both character and vision. Labor Against Waste features Stelling's astonishing guitar work, a melodic finger-picking style influenced in large part by blues legends such as Skip James and Mississippi John, masters like John Fahey, and banjo greats Dock Boggs and Roscoe Holcomb. On top of this soars Stelling's voice, a resonant baritone that calls to mind classic troubadours from Tim Hardin to Steve Earle. Accompanied by an ensemble of stomps, claps, french horn, flugelhorn, kettle drums, string quartet, and a chorus comprised of members from the Low Anthem, in whose studio Stelling recorded the album, Labor Against Waste is the opening statement in what should be a long and storied career.

    Silver Apples


    New 24 Bit /96 kHz Transfer Taken From The Original Master Tapes


    Deluxe Silver Foil Jacket (Tip-On)


    Limited Blue Sky Colored Vinyl


    Formed in 1967 as a psychedelic electronic duo featuring Dan Taylor on drums and Simeon on a homemade synthesizer consisting of 12 oscillators (and an assortment of sound filters, telegraph keys, radio parts, lab gear and a variety of second hand electronic junk), Silver Apples quickly gained a reputations New York's leading underground musical expression.


    Their pulsating rhythmic beats with the use of electronics laid the groundwork for what would become "Krautrock."


    Silver Apples was released in 1968 and still remains an innovative and revolutionary album. Their highly influential sound has influenced countless bands from Stereolab, Beastie Boys, Blur and more.


    The first remarkable trait of Lazy Smoke's sound is the lead vocal's similarity to John Lennon. Upon digging just a little deeper below the surface, we instead find a darker tone and a patient, eerie feeling resonating through the songs.


    While bands like The Beatles and Love were singing about love, lament and hallucinated travel experiences, the songs on Corridor of Faces get sincerely dark right away.


    Even the seemingly-light teenage love-themed "Sarah Saturday" shares an undercurrent of on-the-edge uncertainty. It's this undercurrent that calls to mind comparisons to Forever Changes era Love. Originally privately pressed in MA in an edition of only 500 copies in 1968. Now repressed again in 2016 on Blue Sky Colored Vinyl.
